The St. Olaf Choir and Armstrong Atlantic State University will present a concert Monday night at the university's Fine Arts Auditorium.  

The choral music performance will be both a cappella and with a grand pipe organ. The show is part of a 15-concert tour of the Southeast U.S. from Feb. 1-15.

The choir was founded 102 years ago by F. Melius Christiansen at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. It is internationally recognized as a creative force behind America's a cappella choral tradition, according to an AASU news release. Armstrong is the fourth conductor in the choir's history and led the ensemble since 1990.

"Hearing the St. Olaf Choir is more than just a musical experience," said Armstrong in a statement. "What makes this ensemble distinctive is the way our singers perform at the highest artistic level and touch the hearts and souls of our listeners. Through body, mind, spirit and voice our audiences are transformed."

The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday at AASU's Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $25 for adults; $10 for students. Get tickets or by calling 800.363.5487.
